What we'll do

In March we'll have Samantha Connelly back to talk about mobile testing using Tappy McTapface; a robot she built for mobile automation. We'll have local spearker Andrew Stace talking along side her about his experiences using Node Red.

We'll have free pizza thanks and some giveaways thanks to our sponsors Banlaw and SAPHI

How can you use robots to help you test?
Meet Tappy McTapFace, Tappy is a robot that was built during a 2 day hackathon to help demonstrate how robots could be used to automate testing on mobile apps. It's made out of 3D printable parts, based on Taptser 2.0 open source designs and can be programmed in javascript.
You could also use a robotics challenge to engage your team around testing ideas. Sam will give her insights from running multiple testing challenges that engaged over 100 software engineers. From a lunch time robotics challenge to a company wide bug bash. Sam has run many events that help raise a companies testing culture.

Sam Connelly could be described as a motorbike riding, robotics obsessed, girl geek. She is a speaker, trainer and developer evangelist for YOW! Conference.
Mobile Explorative testing is her speciality and she is also the Leader of the Sydney Testers meetup group. Sam credits a technical background and a curious mind as being her major drivers in her pursuits.
She has previously hosted her own community radio show and started a Robogals chapter in Tasmania.
